Re: Voyager balance question

It's not overwhelmingly neck-heavy or body-heavy, the mahogany body weighs like an S.

Re: Voyager balance question

Thanks for the reply. So if I were to convert an RG body which is basswood do you reakon i'd need to weight it somehow as the body wouldn't be as heavy as a mahogany body?

Re: Voyager balance question

A friend of mine had a green Reb Beach model and it was very neck heavy. It was not mahogany from what I could tell. I would image that if you use basswood and cut the notch that your guitar will also be neck heavy.

Re: Voyager balance question

I had an RBM 10,which according to the catalog had a mahogany body.
That guitar was VERY neck heavy!! The only other guitar I've played
that was more neck heavy was a Hamer Steve Stevens.
